See? I told you I'd be back. New look, whaddya think?
Life has been crazy lately with school and some kind of crud flu thing going around. Meh.
There is a silver lining to being sick, however. With all the reading I've been doing for school, I haven't had any real time for any unassigned fiction. Yesterday, I was sick enough to need to stay in bed all day, but not so sick I couldn't read something. I chose The Book of Joe, which turned out to be awesome. Cover to cover in one day, and I loved every page of it.
I figure a book is better than television to lure one's mind away from all the rotten ickyness. With TV, you end up with the couch-potato headache. You know, when you've been lying there for so long, your neck aches, your eyeballs feel like dried raisins, and when the commercial comes on you can't remember what you were actually watching to begin with. That just can't be healthy.
A good novel, however, grabs the brain and works with it. Like physical therapy, only... not so much physical. Everytime I put Joe down, the Ick would come flooding back into my consciousness and I felt almost forced to return my eyes to the pages for sweet escape.
So, to recap: I'm getting over being sick, and here's my blog back. G'night.
